Pere-lachaise Cemetery - Review

No time for the dead to rest! You will find the Pere-Lachaise Cemetery swarming with tourists on any given day. Home to some celebrated graves like those of Oscar Wilde, Piaf, Hausmann, Chopin and of course the crowd puller, Jim Morrison, this cemetery is as busy as any other sight in Paris. And rightly so. Set on a lush green rolling hill and measuring close to 50 hectares, the cemetery has beautiful mausoleums and graves. Some of them are from the World War 2 period and a few are also of Nazi victims. Their stories are moving and remind us of times where life wasn’t as easy as now. If you wish, you can grab some flowers from the nearby florist to pay respects to your favourite dead.

  • It is not often that one visits a cemetery while "being a tourist"!! Pere-Lachaise cemetery was started 214 years ago, and to gain entry, one must have either died or lived in Paris. While living or dying in Paris is essential for entry, it only gets one on the very long "waiting list". This is Paris' largest cemetery and covers about 110 acres, or about 4.7 million square feet. Many people [take the Metro number 3 line] come to see a bit of history and have a pleasant, informative walk. I hope that this review has been helpful!!

  • A must see in Paris ! , Don't hesitate to put it in your top 10 when you visit Paris. You can visit the graves of many many famous people from Balzac to Oscar Wilde and etc. Very good metro access at both North and south side of the cemetery. It is like a museum with the style of British gardens. The entrance is free and toilets are available. If you search for someone especial, try to find the grave address before going to the cemetery as the provided map is not complete.

  • Definitely worth visiting! We have been there only once and will definitely go back to discover more of this magnificent and peaceful place. There are so many famous people buried there, from Yves Montand, Paul Eluard, Jim Morrison, Oscar Wilde, to Balzac or Sarah Bernhardt. It is a very large place and I would recommend to do it in several space. We were there on a sunny day, which made the stained glass of some the tomb come out with magnificent colours. A personal favourite is the cremation area.

  • I was apprehensive about visiting this place after the massive drama that happened with Black Friday and being goth myself didn't want to cause any trouble. I had to visit disguised as a normal person. But I am a huge fan of The Doors so I had to see it at some point. Absolutely stunning in November. The leaves were still falling off the tress and there was a sea of golden foliage everywhere. A few steep stairs to climb but worth it for the crumbling tombs and moss covered statues. One of my favorite places to visit in Paris. And it's HUGE. You could spend all day there trying to navigate it.

  • Massive and beautiful cemetery with graves of some very famous people including Jim Morrison and Oscar Wilde. The cemetery is pretty big and very well maintained. Would definitely reccommend it for a visit.
